Quality Assurance Program
AOSCA QA Program
A Quality Assurance (QA) program provides a complete service for seed merchandised as varieties, hybrids, brands or blends that are generally not marketed as certified seed.
System guidelines are very similar to certification guidelines and enable the seed producer to market seed with the assurance to each customer that the seed is of known purity and quality as verified by an unbiased third-party agency (ICIA).
The program provides coordinated, professional and unbiased field inspections and laboratory testing for quality control in seed in addition to an unbiased record system for use in meeting state and federal seed law requirements.
Seed buyers have confidence that the designated seed has met purity standards related to a known description across seed lots and years of production.
